Circle of Friends

We are a new group of some crazy ladies! We are here to share our work, get some real critique and most of all, chat about our everyday lives! We will always have a shoulder to lean on, a place to share with friends and a place to challenge ourselves.

Guidelines

1. This will be a friendly environment to escape from the realities of real life. The main focus of this group will be our creations; layouts, cards and home décor, but we look forward to learning more about each other, sharing our joys, triumphs, trials and tribulations are encouraged.

2. We will share tips, tricks and techniques that we have found and or learned and encourage all members to do the same. Please leave love in the members' gallery and designate COF so we know who we are. Critiquing will be done in this forum.

3. We all realize that there are lives outside of forum ! Please just check in on a regular basis. If you’re going to be gone just let us know. We care about you!

4. We will do a monthly challenge. The members will alternate choosing the challenge every month. If you are unable to complete by the deadline please let us know. We understand life’s little emergencies, but please at least try the challenges.

5. Big decisions will be made by the group and as a group. Everyone will have a voice.

6. One of the biggest guidelines is that we all have FUN!!! While these guidelines are not etched in stone they are a start and will help to keep things stress free and running smoothly.

(Thanks to Spacey Tracy for the framework of our guidelines.)

We can do it when we open our gifts and whenever we get back online. I plan on taking a picture of all my goodies and posting it. I'm hoping everyone does the same!

On Saturday, I went to HL. Usually Doug stays in the sub. This time, we got a parking spot right in front of the doors. He parks, I go to get out and he says well wait for me. I was shocked. So he goes in with me and I get what I want and then I went to look at Cricut carts since they were on sale, didn't see any I wanted there. Then he asked me which ones I had on my list. I said they didn't have them at HL. He said Brittni wanted to buy me something from just her, cuz all the kids do that. Then they give me something from all of them. Anyways, I got to thinking and the carts I ordered from custom crops should be here by Dec. 24, I told Brittni if she wants to give me one, I will open the box, make sure they are all there and everything is ok and then she can take them all to her room, pick one, wrap it and keep the others in her room and then I won't know which one she picked to give to me. They thought that was a good idea. And when we were in HL looking at Cricut stuff, Doug seen the Jukebox there. He said Oh man, now I suppose you need one of those. I laughed and told him I already had one, got it for $39.99. HL wanted 89.99 for it. He laughed. He asked me how could they sell it for so cheap when HL was asking $50 more.

Check this out. I just had to comment on this one. Good grief.




The guilt isn't worth it. Honest mistakes happen and it's one thing but knowingly paying for only 1 while KNOWING there's more than 1 is wrong. It is shoplifting. No different than putting a separate item into another item and only paying for one.

Oh, Yvonne, how scary! I did something like that in a boyfriend's car. How I didn't hit another car is simply a miracle. I ended up in the emergency lane at a 90 degree angle. It was the hand of God since there had been cars all around me when I hydroplaned. Stupid boyfriend's tires were bald!!!

We have one that runs constantly for dust problems that causes our allergies to act up badly. When I boiled some eggs dry, man what a stink, it helped to get rid of the smell. I ran it on high for a couple of days.
